Re: Derek Hatton

BTW although it might be a 'minefield', we've got ourselves into it by failing to meet the issue head-on. In order to talk about Irsael without giving ground to anti-semitism, we first have to talk about Israel, and that means tackling the liberal taboos surrounding it. Israel as it currently exists...

Re: Salad suggestions: cheap, green and "international"

now I have found out the other salad will be a what's-in-the-veggie-drawer melange of greens, tomatoes et al. Looks like there wasn't much in their veggie drawer, then.

Re: Bollocks to Brexit
